When Dr. Schmitt is not in the office, you’ll find him running Stem Cell Carolina, in the gym, on his bike in the woods, “playing soccer” with the best puppy in the world “Cooper”, with his wife Holly, a cardiology nurse practitioner, chasing around his four “almost grown” kids, or feeding chickens, and horses….and the mini-donkeys that protect the chickens….. Oh…the donkeys… (‘lot of shoveling going on there!)
